IMPD: 1 dies in shooting on city’s southeast side

UPDATE: The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the man shot and killed inside a home in the 5900 block of Ridge Drive Monday as 36-year-old Devin Williams.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person was held for questioning after a fatal Monday morning shooting on the southeast side of Indianapolis, police said.

At 6 a.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers found a man shot to death inside a home in the 5900 block of Riva Ridge Drive. That’s just north of the intersection of Arlington Avenue and Thompson Road.

The shooting was first reported to be self-inflicted, but homicide detectives later determined that someone else was involved, IMPD said in a release.

“One person has been detained and IMPD is not actively looking for any additional people. Investigators believe all involved parties have been identified,” IMPD Public Information Officer Samone Burris said.

Police did not say if the person held for questioning is considered a suspect.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office will release the victim’s name after their relatives have been notified.

The fatal shooting at the first of at least three Monday in Indianapolis. A man died Monday night after being found shot outside an apartment building on the west side of Indianapolis, police say. A person died after a later Monday night shooting in a residential area near 30th Street and Mitthoeffer Road.
